The Hierophant can represent your team of guides and angels. If you are unfamiliar with guides, angels, and the important role they play in your life, perhaps the Hierophant can be an invitation to learn about these things. The knowledge of such things will make your life so much more whole. There is a world beneath the surface for you yet to explore. Delve into it. What you find will absolutely amaze you. Do it without fear or reservation. Dive in these waters.
You can not ignore the call to action. It will only repeat louder and louder, each time getting more intense until you finally acknowledge it and begin. The voices will scream louder and louder until you finally listen and embark on your journey.
Some understandings came to me. Creativity flows, and connection to the Divine are greatly enhanced when your chakras are aligned. I was listening to my Zune in shuffle mode. Waylon Jennings came on singing Honky Tonk Heroes. I really like that song, and as is often the case when I hear a song I really like, I feel this tremendous burst of energy. That’s when I realized that hearing a song you really like releases stuck energy that prevents your chakras from aligning. Once those chakras are aligned, you have clarity where you are creatively energized and your connection to the Divine is enhanced as well.
Life is so much better once you learn to poke your head into the other realm away from the mundane. Let them wallow in their petty mundane concerns. When you can step back from it and see it from this other perspective the mundane seems so much less important.
Through channeling, a spirit guide may reveal such things as that you will undergo a dark night of the soul, or other such things that are necessary for spiritual development, but may necessarily reveal how these will manifest on the horizontal plane.
Listen listen listen listen if you ever hope to hear. Do not dictate the medium of the message. Allow for it in any form.
Life lessons that go untested may never be integrated. To integrate a lesson, step away from the environment in which you learned it. Does it have value in this new environment? Remember too, the closer you get to your light, your truth, your purpose, the higher the standard will be that you are held to. Your tests will be stronger and more difficult they may be in order to assess how much you have learned. I do not believe the tests we undergo to assess the lessons we have learned are pass/fail but rather evaluation to see what more we need to achieve balance, clarity, and oneness and understanding.
Do you go to college to learn how to be a college student? No. You go to college to help you learn lessons for the outside world. It is true of all lessons that come your way. That is why it is important to get away and let lessons integrate. Think about it.
You can not help people by changing them. You can help people by helping them identify for themselves the changes they know they have to make themselves. You can use tarot for this, or just your simple and truthful understanding of who they are and what you see in them.
Part of hearing is to accept without the filters that the ego puts in place. This is true- much of what spirit will supply, the ego will deny.
On the spirit side of the fence, they scan for the energy of the heart. The heart is what is most important. It is what they see there that matters. It is what comes from the heart that creates the audio, in a matter of speaking. This is why we say, energize your words in your heart, energize your prayers and intentions in your heart. The heart is their way home to you. Yes, we each are their home. It is the physical body that is on the earth that they converge in. They do not, in a manner of speaking, speak to you, but rather visit within you. They need to know your desires and your needs. They are able to detect many things, but it is through your conscious deliberate attempts to contact them do they understand your specific needs. This speaks of the importance of the heart. What they see in there is what is known to them. Understand this. When meditating, put your manifestation desires into your heart.
We are all students. We are all teachers too.
The logical mind is imperfect. It does its best and when used properly, it is a good tool. So many people don’t understand it though. So many people have no idea what to do with it. To master the logical mind is to master the universe.
When you say “The Universe” what exactly are you referring to? “The Universe this…” “The Universe that…” As I see it, we are referring to our higher self when we refer to “The Universe.” And our team of angels and spirit guides.
The Hierophant can be thought of as any form too, of oracles whatever that means to you. Runes, intuition, tarot, the shuffle mode of your Ipod.
Remember to never deny a teacher, and know that a very strong teacher are your own emotions. For this reason, it is very important not to ignore or deny what you are feeling, especially a lower emotion such as sadness or fear. When feeling sadness, search for why? What is the root cause. As we’ve written before, follow the shadow back to the source of the light.
